Subject: Worlds Largest Captive Snake Dies

The world's largest known snake in captivity, Samantha the reticulated python, has died. Officials at Bronx Zoo, in New York, said they believed she had died of old age. Samantha was already 6.4 metres (21 feet) long and weighed 80 kilograms (175 pounds) when she was brought to the zoo from the South-east Asian island of Borneo in 1993.
